I've never done a book review before in my life, and I'm certainly not going to try to do one now. But since I spent the last 3 1/2 days of my life totally immersed in a book that I honestly could not put down I just had to tell everyone about it.
The book is The help by Kathryn Stockett.
Now, when I choose a book, I choose it in one of two ways:
- Someone refers it to me, simply by telling me "You've GOT to read this book!" OR
- I read the first (only the first) paragraph on the inside jacket of the book.
So, instead of telling you what it's about (except that it is a novel, not a self-help book), I'll simply tell you how I felt while reading it:
Now, get to the bookstore, the library, or, heck, order it from Amazon......but you MUST read this book.
